She dreams of falling in love with someone who is just like the characters she draws in her manga, but she has never had a boyfriend and rarely talks to boys. Her editor tells her that her manga could go far if only she gain some experience in what she wrote. While drawing a steamy scene, Ren runs into Tomoya, her high school's most handsome and popular boy. She quickly runs away, but in the process ends up leaving her manga and Tomoya finds out. Tomoya calls her out on drawing such manga and her having no experience, in which Rena then retorts by asking him to be her boyfriend so she could gain experience. Rena asked him to teach her all about having a boyfriend and being in love , so she could better her work. Tomoya readily accepts because he likes Rena a lot, but eventually gets
mad when he realizes Rena looks at him as a character for her manga not as a real person. Eventually, they both profess their love for each other and become an item.
